We encourage people to dress comfortably. For some, that may mean dressing up, but for most it simply means wearing casual clothes.

Q: What should I do with the kids?
We love your kids and, like you, we want them to have the best worship experience possible. Our older children worship with the adults on Sunday morning, and then about 30 minutes in, they go to their own class for their age group. We also have Children’s and Youth ministry on Wednesdays. There they will have the opportunity to worship and learn God's Word in a way they can relate to and understand.

Q. What kind of music is there?
We have contemporary style worship with a band including drums, bass, brass, piano and sometimes guitars. We sing contemporary worship choruses along with an occasional hymn.

Q. How long will the service go?
We usually have our Sunday morning service be at 75 minutes to an hour and half.

Q. What happens at the end of the service?
We usually have refreshments with coffee and water and also make available prayer leaders who can pray for any special requests up front after the service.
